because now we really live if you stand firm in your life in union with the Lord.
Now we can give thanks to our God for you. We thank him for the joy we have in his presence because of you.
Day and night we ask him with all our heart to let us see you personally and supply what is needed in your faith.
May our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus prepare the way for us to come to you!
May the Lord make your love for one another and for all people grow more and more and become as great as our love for you.
In this way he will strengthen you, and you will be perfect and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all who belong to him. a
